CHICAGO (CBS) — Two girls stole an unmarked Robbins police car from a McDonald’s parking lot, and, after making their getaway, crashed it near the Bishop Ford Freeway.
The suspects fled the accident scene near 111th street and the Bishop Ford, according to Illinois State Police. The accident happened in the northbound lanes shortly before 1:30 p.m.
The two female juveniles stole the unmarked silver 2005 Chevrolet Impala at 145th Street and Pulaski in Midlothian and drove it northbound on Pulaski.
The heist happened around 11 a.m. after a veteran police officer left the car running in the fast food parking lot and went inside to order, police said.
Shortly after they crashed into a white box truck, the two females were arrested and were taken to Roseland Hospital.
The theft was captured on surveillance cameras and the video shows the two young women walking up to the running car and driving off. Police believe the suspects did not realize it was a police car.
There were no weapons in the car.
